Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky has submitted a bill to the parliament, proposing the extension of the current martial law in Ukraine, the Ukrainian government-run Ukrinform news agency reported Tuesday.

If the lawmakers pass the bill, the martial law in Ukraine will be extended for another 30 days starting from March 26.

Ukraine imposed the martial law after Russia started a special military operation on Feb. 24.

The Russia-Ukraine conflict continues on Tuesday as relevant parties are working to broker a peaceful solution.

Negotiations between the two sides are being held daily, Russian presidential aide Vladimir Medinsky, also the head of the Russian delegation, said on Monday.

The fourth round of the negotiations between Russia and Ukraine occurred earlier on Monday via video link. According to Ukrainian Presidential Advisor Mykhailo Podolyak, a member of the delegation, a technical pause has been taken in the negotiations until Tuesday.

Resumed talks between the two sides is underway via video link Tuesday, according to local media.
